PSA Competitions, 2021-2021 Season

KPS has entered the Photographic Society of America, Projected Image Division, Interclub Competition for several years now. We have steadily worked our way up the 6 leagues and now compete in Division One of the competition. Clubs from the USA and many other parts of the world compete in this competition ( as far as I am aware there are no plans for a breakaway European Super League!)

We were successful again this season finishing second to Greater Lynn Photographic Association from Massachusetts. Finishing so high in the competition several of our members images received awards. Julie Walker received the highest award of the season for “Pelican on Ice with Fish”


Other award winners in the Open Competition included Bob Given for “Together”


Simon Roberts for “Osprey”:


Alan Walker for “What are you looking at”:


and Ronnie Gilbert for “Evening round up  on the marsh”:


KPS have also entered PSA Nature Division Interclub Competition over recent years and compete in the first of three divisions. This season we came second and were again, like the PID, pipped to the post by Greater Lynn Photographic Association.  Members images which received awards in the Nature Division included Ronnie Gilbert for Grizzly Bear Fishing:


David Woodthorpe for Snow Hare washing:


and Alan Walker for Long-eared Owl with Kill at Dusk:


And finally for the first time  KPS has entered the PSA, Photo Travel Competition this season. The competition has two divisions and we finished sixth in league B. Award winners included Ken Rennie for “The Raven”:


Fred Bell for “The Witches Hat”:


Carmen Norman for “Alpe di Suisse”:


and John Macfarlane for “Over the high pass into Zanskar”:


Thanks to Alan Walker, Keith Snell and David Woodthorpe for organising the entries for the Open, Nature and Travel competitions respectively.
